Dragonflies and Damselflies of Huntley Meadows Park

Upload spottings of dragonflies and damselflies seen at Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. Please provide as much information as possible for each spotting, especially the exact location where your photos were taken. Don't hesitate to post unknown spottings -- we enjoy the challenge of identifying unknown specimens! And don't worry about posting "doubles." There is natural variation within each species that can be documented by multiple photos of the same species. Also multiple spottings of the same species can help to determine adult flight periods.

There are 34 species of dragonflies and 14 species of damselflies that have been spotted at Huntley Meadows Park (HMP), according to the "Friends of Huntley Meadows Park" species list, "Dragonflies and Damselflies of Huntley Meadows Park." Our long-range goal is to build a database of adult flight periods for all species of dragonflies and damselflies at HMP. A beginner's guide to estimated adult flight periods by species is available on the Website associated with this mission.
